Oscar-nominated screenwriters Taika Waititi ('Jojo Rabbit,' also nominated as a producer) and Anthony McCarten ('The Two Popes') join Lorene Scafaria, Kasi Lemmons, Destin Cretton and Charles Randolph for the full Writer Roundtable.

Taika Waititi, Lorene Scafaria, Kasi Lemmons, Anthony McCarten, Destin Daniel Cretton and Charles Randolph share tactics to tackle real life as well as subjects to avoid entirely, all while exploring humanity "in the service of the truth."

Beginning Sunday, Jan. 5, viewers have been able to watch the roundtable discussions on SundanceTV as part of the cable channel's original nonfiction series, Close Up With the Hollywood Reporter, produced in partnership with The Hollywood Reporter. Come back to TheHollywoodReporter.com on Mondays after the shows air for the full, uncensored discussion online.

The fifth of seven episodes — the Writer Roundtable — aired this Sunday, Feb. 2.
